Paccor is adding new products to its DuoSmart range, with the launch of RecycleDuo and new DuoSmart solutions with rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate) or foamed PP (polypropylene) inlets.

RecycleDuo does not use glue, which allows consumers to separate the plastic inlet and the cardboard segment more easily without any paper remains on the plastic cup, which improves recyclability.

The new DuoSmart with rPET inlet is in response to the market request for an increase in recycled content.

DuoSmart with foamed PP inlet features up to 16% less CO2​ emissions, and 15% less plastic compared to the production of traditional DuoSmart cups.

The new generation of DuoSmart solutions allow the Digimarc barcode to be printed on the paper outer layer and engraved on the plastic cup. It can be scanned with any smartphone camera and will provide consumers as well as companies with information about the respective packaging.

DuoSmart is a packaging solution that combines the advantages of paper with the functionality of plastic. It contains up to 50% less plastic compared to standard injection-molded packaging, and with a ‘zip,’ the inner cup and paper banderole can be easily separated into different waste streams.

Paccor said the brand addresses concerns about the environment with a sustainable biopolymer option, and offers PP, PET and barrier PP or more demanding shelf-life requirements. Available in a range of sizes, DuoSmart runs on standard food industry filling lines.

Already available are varied shapes and sizes of cups in standard and light versions to store different products for dairy, convenience food, dry food, food service and pet food.

Nicolas Lorenz, CCO of Paccor, said, “We are constantly striving to not only achieve our ambitious sustainability goals, but also focus on helping our customers to reach their environmental targets as well. We want to act together responsibly as an entire industry.”
